11:00 AM - 3:00 PM The Mirror Revealed: Stories Told

We are made of our stories.

Through their work, the six artists in this Suffolk University Gallery exhibit answer such questions as:

  • Why do we need stories as a species?
  • How do these stories in the form of myths, fairytales, and folktales reflect on our current cultural conditions, as they have for centuries?Why do these archetypes continue to resonate?
  • How do similar narratives cross cultures?
  • How do we tell these stories to ourselves?
  • How are our real lives and stories mingled with our online presences and relationships?

Participating artists:

Catriona Baker
Andrea Dezso
Anne Eder
Dan Estabrook
Cig Harvey
Terrasa Ulm

5:30 PM - 7:00 PM "A Conversation on Mental Health with the Sports Community."

Monday, September 17, 2018, 5:30-7:00 p.m., Modern Theatre, 525 Washington Street, Boston

Congressman Joe Kennedy III and Trenni Kusnierek, NBC Sports Boston sports anchor and reporter, will co-host a forum discussion on mental health among professional athletes and the sports community. Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens, former New England Patriots wide receiver Troy Brown, former Women's National Basketball Association legend Chamique Holdsclaw, and former National Hockey League player Kevin Stevens will join the discussion. 

Professional athletes are regarded as tough in our culture, and mental health complications are often seen as a contradiction to that narrative. Mental illness doesn't choose who is affected, and in fact, one in five American adults experience a mental health issue in a given year, which means that professional athletes are just as susceptible as anyone else. Increasing numbers of sports stars are breaking barriers by talking about their mental health in the hopes that these very personal public testimonies will encourage others to reach out for help.

Our moderators and panelists will share personal stories and discuss efforts to remove the stigma of mental health in sports, how professional leagues and teams are addressing the issue, and what's being done on the legislative level to improve access to treatment. Audience questions will be invited.
